Fan Mail

Whenever I’m feeling down, I read through the comments on my blog that got blocked as spam. Apparently the new trend in spamming is to post legitimate-sounding messages, simply entering the website being advertised as the commenter’s website in the comment form. The result is a treasure trove of flattering comments, a selection of which I’ve reprinted below.

Thank you for this valuable post. It changed my idea.

I’m glad I could change your idea, FTS. Your original idea probably wasn’t that great anyway.

By some extraordinary coincidence, both Leonard Gleisner and ELC posted the exact same comment on Job Posting of the Day:

I am really enjoying reading your well written articles. It looks like you spend a lot of effort and time on your blog. I have bookmarked it and I am looking forward to reading new articles. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the feedback, guys. It’s great that both of you feel the same way about my blog. I do put a lot of effort into my writing, except for the posts where I quote other sources at length and then make snarky comments.
